EDUC 335 - Reading Strategies and Assessment

(3 credits)
This course provides an in-depth look at working with Pre K -4th grade and middle school students, who do not demonstrate expected progress in reading and writing development. Building upon the foundations and processes established in EDUC 223  and EDUC 324 , the students will investigate, practice, and interpret assessment measures within each area of concern through sound and appropriate selection and application of formal and informal means of assessment. Specific techniques for remediation to address areas of concern will enrich the future teacher’s repertoire of instructional skills and increase confidence in assisting students with reading and related writing delays. Direct work with individual students in Pre K-4th grade and middle school students who experience reading and writing challenges will assist the future teacher in applying theoretical knowledge and making sound instructional decisions. The course objectives meet the Pennsylvania Guidelines for Early Childhood Education. Suggested Prerequisite(s):   and  ; Admission to the Professional Phase. Students will complete fifteen hours of field experience in an area school or educational setting. Required clearances will be needed to participate in field experiences.
